I love Dr. Ehrman's books. His scholarship and writing are outstanding. I have emailed him some follow-up questions, and he has always responded promptly and graciously.
Many of Dr. Ehrman's books are narrated by other people. I was curious to hear from Dr. Ehrman himself, so I purchased this course. Now I understand. Unfortunately, Dr. Ehrman's speaking/lecturing voice can be grating to my ears. That couldn't help but detract from my interest in what he was saying.
I continue to respect Dr. Ehrman's scholarship and writing, but I can't recommend his lectures. Maybe he can take some voice lessons to learn to modulate his tones when lecturing. Until then, I strongly recommend his books that are read by others, but not necessarily the lectures he does himself.

I was raised Catholic and this flipped my upbringing upside down. I honestly wonder what most Catholics would say when asked to describe the Son of Man. Most probably would say it was a name for Jesus. Thinking of Jesus as an apocalyptic prophet really changes things.
The lecturer was engaging and well informed. He did end up screaming the whole time, and his tone alone makes me think he has a somewhat biased view against Christianity. He sounded like he was very determined to prove a point and prove his argument. I don't think any of the information presented was necessarily faulty, but his tone certainly didn't sound calm and rational. Not a huge deal.

Really enjoyed this. Essential companion for anyone reading the New Testament who wants to know how it came to be.

Excellent, clear and comprehensive handling of the subject. Highly recommend.
Erhman demonstrates why he is such a well respected biblical scholar and expert on the historicity of Jesus.
